JOB OPENING: PORSCHE PRODUCT EXPERT
Are you passionate about performance cars? Do you find yourself researching mods and giving your friends advice on how to set up their cars? If you're determined to find a job that combines your career with your passion, then this is your chance! APEX Race Parts is seeking enthusiasts who want to join our elite team of Product Experts.
There are no cold-calls or sleazy sales techniques here. We don't have salespeople, and you don't need sales experience. We're enthusiasts first and foremost. You will become our customers' guru, teacher, and coach. At APEX we take customers under our wing, help them identify their true needs, and then pass on our wisdom. We ensure customers take a holistic approach to modifying their car, and that they feel enlightened by the time their purchase is complete. That's the way spending money on go-fast parts should be.
Your day will consist of answering questions, giving fitment recommendations, light order processing, and post-purchase support. Your objective is to make technical info easy to digest, decrease response times, and support the continued expansion of our company. The majority of your interactions will be via email, car forums, and over the phone. Although you'll take pride in your one-on-one customer interactions, your real success will come from your ability to teach the community en masse by continually improving our fitment guides, forum threads, and product pages.
